Exclamation Personall topic? - March 10th 2015, 03:29 PM

I need to do an 80 hours project for school.
We can choose our subject ourselves.
As Iím really interested in it, I want to do it about problems such as ED, SH, depression, suicide, performance anxiety etc
However Iím dealing with SH, suicidal thoughts and depression.
People ask me if it isnít too personal and a bad idea to do it about such an topic. Even if I was interested in it before I got the problems.
Whatís your opinion.

Helping others sometimes makes it easier to feel good about yourself and help yourself.

So PM me if You want.

Re: Personall topic? - March 10th 2015, 05:10 PM

A few years ago I had to do a project, and I did a large portion of it on self-harm and things relating to it. I actually had a lot of fun with it because it's something that I know a lot about and I think I got a better grade because of the fact that I had personal ties to it. I was able to show more emotion than I would have been able to had I chosen something else. Now whenever I have creative projects that I'm able to chose the topic of, I always do something personal.

I don't think it's a bad idea and I don't think it's too personal. I think it'll be easier to do a project on since you have your own experiences and your own perspective on things.
